The Tennessee Titans have hired Ran Carthon as their new general manager, ESPN’s Dianna Russini and Jeff Darlington report.

Carthon, 41, has spent two seasons as the director of player personnel for the San Francisco 49ers. He previously spent five seasons as the director of pro personnel in San Francisco. Carthon played two NFL seasons as a backup running back and return specialist for the Indianapolis Colts from 2005-06.

Carthon takes over for ex-Titans general manger Jon Robinson, who was fired after a Week 13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He oversaw the trade of A.J. Brown to the Eagles last offseason. Brown tallied 119 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the 35-10 win en route to his first All-Pro season. Robinson served as Tennessee’s general manager for seven seasons.

The Titans lost their last seven games of the season following a 7-3 start. They missed the playoffs after a Week 18 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars with the AFC North title at stake. The Titans fired offensive coordinator Todd Downing and three other assistants after the late-season collapse.
